Paula Fouce is completing SONG OF THE DUNES. The crew was amazed to
find the caste system alive and well in 2008, although it was outlawed
in 1947. The film is an amazing tribute to the Untouchable musicians of
Rajasthan. Their spirit is kept alive through music.
More details about the film can be found at www.songofthedunes.com.

Dr. Modi, president of Maha Bodhi society, asks for Indian citizenship for the Dalai Lama who agreed to become an Indian citizen. If the Dalai Lama gets citizenship, it would end the conflict on the Tibet issue, says Dr. Modi. http://northernlines.in/2008/04/17/dr-bk-modi-demands-indian-citizenship-for-the-dalai-lama/
